Real Trash To Treasure Chair
I really did find this chair on the curb about 8 years ago. I had my husband cut the plywood seat a few months later and yes it has taken me this long to finally paint and do something fun with it!
So first I spray painted it with the Rust-oleum Heirloom White. I love the ultra cover spray paint with the primer included. It covers so much better than the regular spray paint and I use less paint.
I bought a foam pad for about $6 and then cut it to fit the plywood seat that my husband had made for it years ago. When he had made the seat I had covered it with batting and fabric but, it wasn’t comfortable to sit in and needed the extra foam.
I stapled gunned my fabric (used the extra fabric that matched my drapes) to the seat and set it back on top of my chair and that’s it! Why did I take so long to do it! I love it and my husband does too now that I finished one of those lurking projects with junk I have collected!
Only cost me the $6 for the foam because I had all the other supplies to complete my trash to treasure project!
